We come to Queenstown often and will be staying here for all future visits. The 2 rooms plus the living area and self contained kitchen is amazing. Heated floors, fire place, 2 bathrooms is perfect for our family. Staff are friendly and very helpful. Thanks guys, you do a great job!

We stayed five nights, and didn't want to leave. Waking up to breath-taking vistas every morning was beyond description, and provided something new to appreciate with every new sunrise. My wife LOVED the free perfume on arrival, and couldn't stop raving about it all week. The best part of all was that these guys allowed us to bring our family... More

Queenstown is already a beautiful small town, too spectacular for words.. But the Pounamu Apartments was the icing on the cake! We had such an amazing experience at the apartments, I was actually proposed to in room 303B by view! I will never forget our experience with the apartments! The lady at the reception was very welcoming! She held good... More

Nicely located apartment a short drive from Queenstown. The apartment is luxurious with great views of the lake and the mountains. Love the heated floor and the gas wood looking fireplace. Free wifi for up to four devices was great and having a washing machine and dryer was very useful.

This was our second visit to Queenstown, and our second stay at Pounamu! Originally we had booked into Rydges, only to be very disappointed with the room. We quickly checked out and phoned Pounamu where we had stayed on our previous visit. We mentioned that we were on our honeymoon and when we arrived there was champagne, chocolates, rose petals...

Big surprise as to how good the apartments really were! Room 314 had lovely Lake views , good sized lounge room, loved the business bar which had computer, phone charging, printer etc. BR 2 was perfectly equipped for teenage son travelling with us. Under cover car park, ski cupboard, nothing missing except perhaps some exercise equip or gym., and if... More

Visited Queenstowns for a family Ski/Boarding holiday. Stayed in a 2 bedroom appartment for 9 nights with 2 adults and 2 children. The appartment was well appointed with good kitchen facilities and appliances (apart from the rice cooker - we recommend you use a pot). We found the cooking facilities fantastic after a day of skiing and used them more... More

So comfortable, our home away from home. Everything you would ever need was there. The only bad thing was that we had to leave. The views were extraordinary as well as the service and facilities in the rooms. Floor heating throughout made for a very comfy winter holiday. Kids had their own space with a TV and bathroom, and plenty... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. Located not too far out of town. It was great having the cupboard in the parking area to store our skis instead of having to drag them to our room every night. Our room had a beautiful view of the lake and surrounding mountains. Definitely recommend using the spa during your stay!
